DELPHOS — Delphos residents are under a boil water advisory on August 1.

Delphos officials are investigating a 12 inch main water line break near the intersection of South Main Street and Cleveland Street. Many area residents could experience low water pressure or no water.

“We discovered a leak last night around 11:30,” Safety Service Director Shane Coleman said. “Officials have been on the scene since then.”

The water pressure is expected to be restored on Monday, but residents remain under a boil water advisory until further notice.

Due to the main water line break, the Delphos Swimming Pool will be closed for August 1.

A portable water drink station has been set up at the Muncipal Building at 608 N. Canal Street. Residents must bring their own containers.

Updates will be provided as they become available. More information can also be found on the City of Delphos Facebook page.

As of Monday at noon, the leak has been repaired. The crews are still working to pressurize the lines. Residents must still boil their water before using. As the water may be cloudy or discolored they are urged to avoid doing laundry.
